Harford Community College Chooses 5G Wireless Solutions for Campus-Wide Networking Equipment
MARINA DEL REY, Calif. -- Dec. 1, 2005 -- 5G Wireless Solutions, Inc., an emerging leader in the wireless broadband industry and a wholly-owned subsidiary of 5G Wireless Communications, Inc. (OTCBB:FGWI), announced today that Harford Community College in Bel Air, Maryland has joined the ever growing list of colleges and universities selecting 5G's "cellular-style" Wi-Fi equipment package to provide broadband
wireless access throughout its campus environment.
The 33-acre campus will utilize 5G's low cost, high performance technology to create a campus-wide Wi-Fi HotZone(TM) that may eventually be extended to include the surrounding community. Wireless broadband access will be provided both indoors and out, and include selected off-campus housing units. Cameras will be linked to the system to monitor the immediate exterior of the campus property as part of the
campus's security system.
"We're also accommodating the cosmetic concerns of the college by coating several of the outdoor units to blend in with the surfaces on which they're mounted," stated Jerry Dix, 5G Wireless Communications' CEO. "Another advantage of the lower amount of hardware needed is that devices we use can be made more aesthetically acceptable. This is an important consideration on many college campuses where the historic nature of the environment should be preserved."
Harford is at the center of a statewide effort to expand undergraduate degree opportunities to fulfill workforce shortages in areas of teacher preparation, health care and technology. Its Higher Education and Applied Technology (HEAT) Education and Conference Center provides expanded access to the citizens of northeastern Maryland to help advance degree attainment for minorities. The HEAT Center includes access to the College of Notre Dame, Towson University,
University of Maryland at College Park, University of Phoenix and Johns Hopkins University.
